Product Use:

Signage
Trial Number Date Run Purpose Success Rating
0 07/14/2010 To determine then difference in effectiveness of eight different cleaners using the predefined cleaning method. Results successful using TACT (time, agitation, concentration, and temperature, as well as rinsing and drying) and/or other cleaning chemistries examined.
1 06/19/2020 The purpose of this experiment was to use unheated immersion to identify the hardest buffing compound to remove of the three compounds (Red Buffing, White Buffing, and Blue Buffing) using the cleaners Dimethyl glutarate and Metalnox 6386. Results successful using TACT (time, agitation, concentration, and temperature, as well as rinsing and drying) and/or other cleaning chemistries examined.
2 07/16/2020 The purpose of this experiment was to evaluate the effects of cleaners using unheated, heated, and heated immersion with agitation to remove the white buffing compound from aluminum substrates. Results successful using TACT (time, agitation, concentration, and temperature, as well as rinsing and drying) and/or other cleaning chemistries examined.
3 07/22/2020 The purpose of this experiment was to test the effectiveness of heated ultrasonics in removing the red, white, and blue buffing compounds from aluminum and copper coupons using the cleaner Micro 90. Results successful using TACT (time, agitation, concentration, and temperature, as well as rinsing and drying) and/or other cleaning chemistries examined.
4 07/16/2020 The purpose of this experiment was to determine the effectiveness of Liquinox in removing the white buffing compound from stainless steel coupons via heated immersion with a stir bar. Results successful using TACT (time, agitation, concentration, and temperature, as well as rinsing and drying) and/or other cleaning chemistries examined.
5 08/04/2020 The purpose of this experiment was to retest Micro 90 on aluminum coupons removing all three buffing compounds using heated ultrasonics. Results successful using TACT (time, agitation, concentration, and temperature, as well as rinsing and drying) and/or other cleaning chemistries examined.
6 08/05/2020 The purpose of this experiment was to evaluate the effectiveness of high performing cleaners in removing soil from parts provided by the company. Results successful using TACT (time, agitation, concentration, and temperature, as well as rinsing and drying) and/or other cleaning chemistries examined.
7 08/14/2020 To test the effectiveness of Surface Cleanse 930 on the removal of various contaminants. Preliminary compatibility tests on substrate coupons encouraging for at least one cleaning chemistry. More in-depth laboratory testing necessary.
